this which is why they voted to reject territory status in a referendum held one year ago. the obama administration recognizes this as well, which is why it proposed the first federally sponsored status vote in puerto rico's history to resolve the issue once and for all. and finally, members of congress, from both bodies, comprehend this which is why 125 of them have co-sponsored legislation i introduced that provides for an up or down vote in puerto rico on the territory's admission as a state and outlines the steps the federal government will take if a majority of voters favor admission. there are many reasons to oppose puerto rico's territory status, which is unequal, undemocratic and un-american. one of the most important reasons why puerto rico must discard this status in favor of either statehood or nationhood is because the current status has failed and will continue to fail to provide the island's 3.6 million american citizens with the economic opportunities and the quality of life they deserve. those who refuse to acknowledge this fundamental truth for ideological reasons ar
